ok if there is the "makefile" there try giving the command
Code: [Select]
make this will complie the driver....
then give "as root"
Code: [Select]
make install
if there is any configure in the directory first of all remember to give
Code: [Select]
./configure

Sumit.. after that. it is clear that it is not the driver problem.. it is simply software prob.. as Redhat has removed the mp3 support from XMMS in RH9 then i u should have tried to intall that in ur machine and that has messed up all. Try to install mplayer and then play from that.. then tell us.. Also remove xmms rpm and install latest from internet.. may be that help..
